As I have said before, inspiration for my posts come from a variety of places. It can be something I see, something I hear, something I read, or just my brain saying “Hey, what about this!” Tonight I give a shout out to Tippy for his blog post, https://unicorniks.com/2018/12/08/stolen-quote-limelight/. After reading it and commenting on it with him and Colin, it sparked an idea in my mind. Whether it was a good idea is up for you readers to decide.
Time to Shine!
What was that, a little light was shining into the box. He squinted for he had been used to it being so dark for a long time. Oh he felt the tingles of excitement, as the light continued to shine in. Whoa! He was moving. Where was he going? Was the time finally here? It had been a long sleep for him and his friends and they were ready to shine once again.
The box was set down and this time there was a lot of light that poured in, plus a lot of noise! He heard the familiar, happy voices of the children. They were always happy when they saw the box that he and his friends were in. It made him feel special.
Jimmy was so anxious to get out of the box once more, but he knew he needed to wait. One by one his friends were getting taken out before him. First went Jack, then Jill came after.
All of his friends were excited too. There was an extra shine to their complexions on this special day. The day that they came out of the attic. Some were bright red, and some shimmered gold and some had a silver tint to their complexion, but all of them shined bright.
“Mommy, its my turn this year! Remember! ”
“Yes Shane, I know, here you go, now be careful with it.” replied Shane’s Mom.
“Up we go!” said Shane’s Daddy, as he lifted him up high to put him on his shoulders.
Jimmy was always a little nervous about this part, for he really didn’t want to be dropped!
“Put it on straight Shane.”, his Daddy said.
Jimmy did his best to straighten himself up, it felt good to stretch!
“I did it!” shouted Shane, and his Daddy brought him back down to the ground.
Jimmy felt so good being up so high. He was at the tippety top of the tree! He always got a little dizzy at first, until he got used to it.
“Turn on the lights Daddy, turn them on!” the children begged
“Oooooh….Awwww…So beautiful….So pretty!” were the cries from the family below as they admired their Christmas Tree.
“I love the twinkling star,!” said little Sarah
Jimmy twinkled a little brighter just for her.
Jimmy and his friends were elated, tonight was their night! It was time for them to shine bright, for tonight they were in the limelight!
